Actor and comedian Jamie Foxx and his girlfriend, Katie Holmes, have been together for several years, according to media outlets.
The lovebirds made things official over the summer by accepting to be photographed walking hand-in-hand in Malibu Beach. Since then, the Dawson’s Creek actress and Mr. Foxx have gone into hiding.
Several reports claimed they were keeping things under wrap because of Holmes’ ex-husband, Tom Cruise.
It was revealed that Holmes did not want her romance made public because it would anger Cruise, who would launch a bitter custody battle over their daughter, Suri, as revenge.
Now, insiders are giving an entirely different reason for the secretive romance. Foxx fears that reporters and naysayers will criticize every aspect of the relationship.
Via, The Inquisitr, an insider said: “He’s been so busy with movies and all of his other businesses that he knows he can’t be a good boyfriend to her.”
The family friend added: “Jamie is not ready to get married, but he brings a lot of joy into her life, and he’s happy with Katie. They’re still dating. It’s been hard to find that balance, but they’re happy, and they care about each other a lot. They’ve tried to stay as quiet as possible because they don’t want to ruin things. The second they confirm they’re together, it opens the gates for criticism.”
The source went on to say: “He would never want to hurt her. He really cares for her.”
Meanwhile, Hollywood Life is reporting that Holmes is not happy about the situation.
One person in the know claimed: “Katie is ready to go more public with her relationship, but Jamie is trying to keep things quiet, and that is disappointing to her.”
This source added: “Jamie has been a big part of their life for a while now, and aside from the occasional walk on the beach, the pair has kept their private life private. Katie has made it clear to Jamie that they have nothing to fear and no reason to keep things hush. Katie is proud to be with Jamie and wants to feel free to go out to dinner, the theater, Disneyland with Suri or anywhere they want together.”
Some commenters say that a marriage might not be for Foxx.
